Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 427

Wednesday, August 2, 2023


2022. Gouache & acrylic on illustration board (w/ digital edits), 11 × 17″.

For the last of 6 connecting covers, I enlisted another illustrator, Nick Lasovich, to help me with a 3D mock-up of the family. He used Daz3D to pose everyone and I lit the scene in Blender to play with the cast shadows. I knew Lori and Judith were going to be tough because I had to convey a a lot with minimal detail and contrast, but the model really helped me figure out the best approach. You can see the reference that went into the other covers here: 43, 44, 45, 46, & 47. And you can purchase signed books in my shop.

I posed as Rick, Carl, and a bunch of zombies.
